about

Disillusioned by her glitzy life in London and her desirable but cruel TV-presenter boyfriend, Rosie Richardson chucks it all in and spends four years running a refugee camp in Africa. Then famine strikes in a nearby province and an influx of starving refugees threatens to overwhelm the camp. Frustrated by the cautious response of the aid agencies, Rosie decides on a drastic short-term solution. She returns to London, breaks back into the celebrity circuit and brings the celebs out to Africa for a star-studded TV emergency appeal. 'A champion first novel . . . what makes it such a pleasure to read is its variety of tone: flip, flirtatious, serious, mocking and moving . . . get hold of a copy of this book' Observer 'A terrific achievement . . . The camp scenes are as moving and funny as the original M.A.S.H.; she sends up the self-important "mediacracy" with an insider's wit, and it's written at a romping pace with a cliff-hanger finish' Cosmopolitan 'Sharp, gutsy and refreshing' Independent 'Thoughtful, ironic and completely gripping' Harry Enfield 'A brilliantly funny satire' Time Out

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Very enjoyable Written with the same humour as the later Bridget Jones books, Cause Celeb is an enjoyable story that pokes fun at the shallowness of celebrity causes while not avoiding the tragedy of the famine in Africa.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Caus Celeb I thought this was a terrific story written in the nineties but still sadly very relevant today.....funny, tragic, houmoursly romantic but most of all a very serious subject that continues to repeat itself today....famine in Africa.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not worth the read I started reading the book and realized I had made a mistake in buying. I did not finish the book as I was unable to read that nonsense.
